127Fleetwood MacFleetwood Mac are a British-American rock band formed in July 1967, in London. The band have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time.

There are some great live acts on here (like Queen and The White Stripes) but back in their prime, Fleetwood Mac basically took their studio recordings which was basically radio friendly rock, and morphed it into lengthy jam session which are second to none. This band was a totally different entity live. Especially the Midnight Special performance of Rhiannon.
